Letter from the Chair of the Hub Board ‘Why teach young people music?’ I recently googled this question hoping to find some inspirational piece of writing which would justify what we all think and suspect, that music isn’t given the same consideration as other core subjects such as maths, English and history. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and many other organisations make reference to well being, confidence, transforming lives with an array of quotes from the likes of Plato and Aristotle. Now I’m not suggesting otherwise, it would be foolish to challenge the transformational effect that music has on all of us. However, I want to ask a far more fundamental and basic question, why isn’t music education held in the same regards as these core subjects? There is a view, and I would point you to the great Sir Ken Robinson, which suggests that all young people are born creative and that our education system does its best to stamp this out by the time young people study for further or higher education. For example if we said to a group of teachers that English was no longer going to be taught at school, such a thought would rightly be greeted with abject horror. Inform the same group of teachers that music was no longer being taught in their school I suspect it would be met with a mixture of sadness and a sense of resignation. And yet music is said to be a language, it communicates across race, religion and creed. Most importantly it doesn’t recognise social barriers. I want music to be a core subject for all young people up to say the age of 14. I want young people to be creative and to explore the wonderful things that music provides, the ability to perform and the opportunity to enjoy. I know such thinking is a stretch for those guiding our young people’s education, however I’ve worked with young people who are at risk of falling out of education and I’ve learnt that music along with other art forms such as dance connects and draws them back in. At the Hub let’s promote the idea that music is crucial to a young person’s upbringing. Andy Grays - Chair CEO Portsmouth Cultural Trust

National Curriculum Consultation Update The formal public consultation closed in April and received over 17,000 submissions from wide range of respondents. The summary report of those responses, along with the government response (which includes an update on the implementation of the new national curriculum), can be seen at https://www.education.gov.uk/consultations/index.cfm? action=conResults&consultationId=1881&external=no&menu=3 The following is the paragraph relating to music in the report of the consultation: Music Responses to the draft music curriculum were broadly positive. Some respondents welcomed the brevity of the new curriculum, which was seen to give greater flexibility to teachers to be innovative in their classrooms. Others welcomed the new emphasis placed on music-making and the importance of pupils’ musicianship. Some respondents believed that there should be more references to creativity and to the place of music technology in the curriculum. There have consequently been a number of revisions. The new framework document and programmes of study, along with the consultation document on the Order for the new national curriculum and details of how to respond, can be found at https://www.gov.uk/ government/consultations/national-curriculum-review-newprogrammes-ofstudyandattainment-targets-from-september-2014. The consultation closed on 8 August. Most of the current national curriculum will be disapplied from September 2013, in order to give schools scope to prepare for the introduction of the new national curriculum from September 2014. Schools will be able to choose either to follow the existing programmes of study or to adjust them to support transition to the new national curriculum. Consultation on primary assessment and accountability: The government’s consultation on primary assessment and accountability, launched on 17 July, will run until 11 October 2013. It follows publication of the new national curriculum programmes of study and the announcement that the current system of levels will be removed and not replaced. The DfE is seeking views on how attainment in national curriculum tests should be measured and reported; where a baseline should be taken to measure pupils’ progress; and proposals for how schools should be held to account. For more information and the relevant documents please visit https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/newnationalcurriculum-primaryassessement-and-accountability

Publication of ʻCultural Educationʼ The Government (Department for Education and the Department for Culture Media and Sport) have published ‘Cultural Education’ - A summary of programmes and opportunities, with a foreword stating that they hope this will “celebrate, encourage and facilitate’ cultural education in schools”. Michael Gove and Ed Vaizey also state in the foreword that “We will encourage more schools to offer a wider spread of creative subjects with a new accountability framework for secondary schools”. Darren Henley says “ I warmly welcome the publication of the government’s new Cultural Education document as a result of one of the recommendations in the second review. I believe it should be seen as a companion to the government’s National Plan for Music Education, which was published following the music reviewin 2011. The existence of these two publications underlines the significance of all of the subjects within their joint remit and affirms the importance of the contribution that cultural education subjects can make to developing a generation of well-rounded and culturally enriched young people.” https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/cultural-education

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENJAMIN BRITTEN! 2013 is a momentous year for celebrating composers' anniversaries. Wagner and Verdi were both born 200 years ago, in 1813, and Benjamin Britten, one of Britain's greatest composers, was born 100 years ago in 1913. His actual birthday is 22nd November, St Cecilia's day, which is very apt as St Cecilia is the patron saint of music. Britten wanted his 'music to be of use to people, to please then, to enhance their lives'. He refused a knighthood but later became the first musician in history to be appointed a Lord by Her Majesty the Queen. Many events are being held across the country during this year to celebrate BB's centenary. Friday Afternoons is a set of 12 songs composed by Britten between 1933 and 1935 for his brother, Robert, and the children of Clive House School in Prestatyn where he taught. Choir took place on Friday afternoons, hence the title of this song cycle. Based on these songs, there is a nationwide project to highlight the composer's legacy of work for young people and to further encourage singing in schools. It culminates on the afternoon of Friday 22nd November 2013 when tens of thousands of young people across the UK will join together to sing these songs. Locally, children from schools in Portsmouth have the opportunity to join others from Southampton and Hampshire to perform these songs in the Turner Sims Concert Hall in Southampton that will be streamed live around the country. Some schools have already registered their interest in taking a minibus of children to this event but there are other ways schools can take part. Schools could use the live stream from Turner Sims as the basis for their own event in school. As part of the Ready 4 Music programme, it is planned that one or more songs from Friday Afternoons will be learned during the Autumn Term and performed, where possible, during the week of 18th to 22nd November and/or the end of term festival. Your Ready 4 Music teacher will talk to you about how the songs will be included in the lessons. What next? Don't worry; you don’t have to learn all the songs! To find out more about how you can one of the schools selected to take part in the Turner Sims event - contact portsmouthmusichub@portsmouthcc.gov.uk or telephone 023 9237 5655 by 20th September. The Friday Afternoons website www.fridayafternoonsmusic.co.uk has a wealth of resources: lesson plans, scores, backing tracks, a photo archive and much more - all free of charge to download and use. Join thousands of others across the UK in celebrating Britten's centenary in style!

Trinity Level 4 Certificate for Music Available in the UK from September 2013, the Trinity Level 4 Certificate for Music Educators (Trinity CME) is a brand new, accredited qualification – linked to a flexible, vocational programme of learning – for music educators who work with children and young people. The Trinity CME: • includes assessment across six units representing best practice in music education • is linked to training and support geared to meet music educators’ specific needs • is suitable for music educators who work in any setting or musical genre • recognises prior learning and experience in order to avoid unnecessary repetition of study • can be completed in a flexible way to fit around professional commitments. In its 2012 National Plan for Music Education, the government called for a new nonmandatory qualification that would recognise music educators for their work and provide them with opportunities to develop their practice. The Trinity CME is the result of this initiative and was developed through a process of open consultation with music educators. The Trinity CME has been developed for anyone who works as a music educator with children and young people, including: • instrumental and vocal teachers working with music services, hubs, schools or privately • early years and primary teachers • community musicians and workshop leaders • professional musicians who undertake education work. The Trinity CME assesses learners across the following six units: • Understanding children and young people’s musical learning • Planning, facilitating and evaluating young people’s musical learning • Reflective practice and professional development in music education • Promoting children and young people’s positive behaviour • Equality, diversity and inclusion in music education • Safeguarding in music education To register for the Trinity CME, learners need to get in touch with a Trinity CME provider, which is an organisation that has been validated by Trinity to work with and assess learners effectively. Providers can include music education hubs, schools, colleges, conservatoires, universities or other organisations that work with music educators.

ABOUT THE BAND The Band and Bugles of The Rifles are based at Sir John Moore Barracks in Winchester and are one of 22 bands in the British Army that form the Corps of Army Music. The Band and Bugles were formed on 1st February 2007 from The Band and Bugles of the Light Division. The Band is established for 35 musicians, all of whom join the Corps of Army Music on enlistment. On completion of their initial military training, musicians receive tuition at the Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall, before being assigned to a Band. In addition, the Bugle Platoon comprises 20 infantry soldiers from the five regular Battalions that form The Rifles. The earliest Riflemen used bugles rather than drums to communicate orders on the battlefield. They were also able to react rapidly to orders by marching at a quickened pace or even marching at the double. These strong traditions and the regimental motto 驶Swift and Bold始 are upheld by The Band and Bugles of The Rifles to this day. The Band and Bugles of The Rifles appear by kind permission of General Sir Nick Carter, CBE, DSO, Colonel Commandant The Rifles

EVENTS Burghley Horse Trials, Burghley House: The Band and Bugles are performing on the bandstand and marching concerts at this equestrian event on 7 September 2013. More information can be sourced at: www.eventfulstays.com 4 RIFLES Homecoming Parade, Salisbury: 4 RIFLES led by The Band and Bugles of The Rifles will parade through the city of Salisbury to welcome them home from their operational tour on 9 December 2013.

On the 2nd of July 2013 Jobsite (a job search and online recruitment company based inHampshire) and Music Fusion (a charity that accesses and engages young people through music) picked up an award at the Business in the Community ‘Responsible Business Awards’ for“Inspiring Social Action in Young People”.

To-date, Music Fusion has worked with over 30,000 young people, most of whom have experienced ‘challenging life circumstances’. “I am thrilled to see Music Fusion’s great work with young people being recognized in this prestigious award, which is truly well deserved. Not only has the organization changed the lives of many of its project participants, it has also brought young people from divided communities together. Music has been at the heart of this process and this charity’s work shows just how powerful a force for change music can be. Our congratulations to all those involved.” Matt Griffiths, Youth Music Executive Director In 2011 Music Fusion launched a high profile campaign called ‘Words Not Weapons’ in partnership with local authorities, the Police and several local businesses. The programme was put together to address the growing fear of knife and improvised weapon crime amongst children and young people in the region. Weapons The response to this programme was astonishing. Over 50 young people were directly involved in shaping and supporting Words Not Weapons. Through promotion the album reached well over 6,000 young fans. As a result of the campaign, 73 young people stopped carrying a weapon and a further 24 decided against starting to carry a weapon. With Jobsite's support ‘Words Not Weapons’ have just released their second album. Young artists from across the South of England teamed up with national UK urban acts such as MicRighteous, English Frank, Genesis Elijah, Nate and Logic to record the ground breaking, hard hitting CD.

Job Site and Music Fusion continued... The partnership is close to launching its new ‘young person owned and run social enterprise’. A record company specifically for children and young people. The social enterprise will pair up young entrepreneurs with top level business mentors. It will then showcase this model and its best practice so that other companies can do the same. There were two success stories on the 2nd of July 2013. One was that two members of the ‘Words Not Weapons’ team, Blessed (19) and Karrera (13) got to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in front of 1000+ international business leaders. The other was that against all the odds, Jobsite and Music Fusion won an award for their unique approach to corporate social responsibility.

Round Up: The Choir Year The choir year has now come to a close. We have a great deal to celebrate and to give thanks for, alongside some sad farewells from our ranks. Since the last newsletter, we have sung Messiah, broadcast on Radio 3, sung at Westminster Abbey, premiered the Dove ‘Portsmouth Service’ and performed as part of a national Fauré Requiem Tour. Sweden—tour to Uppsala and Stockholm Junior School chorister Ben Nash writes….. “In February the Cathedral Choir went to Sweden. We sang in some wonderful churches, some big, some small. My favourite was Uppsala Cathedral where we sung my favourite piece, Mozart’s Spatzenmesse. In one small church I did a solo even though it was accidentally swapped with Freddie’s (whoops!silly Dr Price) It was very fun even in the cold, with Mr. Marriot telling us not to throw snowballs. On the penultimate day we went to Sofia Church, Stockholm where we joined up with their choir to sing a concert.” BBC Radio 3 and Westminster Abbey The boys and men had a busy March with a live broadcast on Radio 3 in the middle of Holy Week. ‘Many congratulations on a superb Choral Evensong this afternoon. I was thoroughly absorbed by the opening canticle and impressed generally by the diversity of sound you achieved with the choir.’ Then on Easter Bank Holiday Monday we travelled to sing Evensong at Westminster Abbey to a congregation of 800! Cathedral Sing! Our outreach work continues apace. Members of the Cathedral Choir and of Cantate will be working with local primary schools in Newport Minster and Holy Trinity, Fareham as well as in Portsmouth itself just before Christmas. Both choirs have separately undertaken many trips out to parishes over recent months with the Cathedral Choir singing at Holy Spirit Southsea, St James Milton and Holy Trinity Gosport this term.

Round up: The Choir Year continued.... City of London Symphonia Fauré Tour Portsmouth was one of only ten cathedrals selected for a nation-wide tour by the CLS and their conductor Stephen Layton for performances of the Fauré Requiem, the Poulenc Organ Concerto, Vaughan Williams, Thomas Tallis and a new work by Gabriel Jackson. Both Cantate and the Cathedral Choir took part and the concert was a great success. Stephen Layton wrote……’Now the orchestra has finished the first leg of our tour I wanted to thank you and the Cathedral Choirs for joining us in the recent concert. It was a great privilege for us to work with your choir and quite an experience to make music together in Portsmouth Cathedral.’ The Portsmouth Service We commissioned the composer Jonathan Dove to write a new Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in thanksgiving for the legacy of William Groves to the cathedral in 2013. We are delighted with our new set of canticles and Jonathan attended the first performance at Evensong on Pentecost Sunday in May— ‘thank you so much for such a brilliant premiére..the performance was even more exciting than I hoped and the acoustic gave it an immediacy which I found thrilling’. Forthcoming events Next term we look forward to a number of regular ‘fixtures’ as well as new events and services in the choirs’ calendar. The Royal Marines School Of Music annual service of remembrance for the musicians s of the Band Service, We shall be talking part in a performance of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem in this the hundredth anniversary of his birth. Both choirs will be singing at the Advent Carol Service on Sunday 1st December and also at a Christmas Concert on Saturday 21st; and in June 2014 DDay70 will see us broadcasting three services on BBC Radio 3 and 4.
